Hi, my name is John Strubel. I am a freelance sports reporter from Charleston, South Carolina. This is my personal web site and portfolio.

Thank you for visiting My writing is predominantly related to my greatest passion in life: baseball. I also include stories on sports personalities, sports media, social media, and related content that impact and influence the sports industry.

My goal is simple: to create insightful, relevant content that will inform and entertain.


Did you get goosies when you saw the new post-season promotional video on the MLB Network? I certainly did (if you missed it, watch the instant replay above).

Vin Scully’s timeless voice and timeless calls are once again center stage. The video pulls us through a half century of Scully’s greatest calls in record time: two minutes and 25 seconds. From Sandy Koufax to Bill Buckner/Mookie Wilson and Kirk Gibson, the “timeless” voice resonates with fans young and old.
